This was a massive defeat for Connaught 'B', alleviated only to a small extent by the ability to match Hempnall's weaker combinations. The two stronger combinations from Hempnall outplayed the home side totally and this is evidenced by the huge deficit on overall shots. What was apparent was the inability to withstand constant pressure, with Connaught's best woods being matched virtually all the time and with the Hempnall players relentlessy building up the heads and placing positional woods. Their concentration levels also were far higher while all the Connaught players committed unforced errors in their efforts to respond. At least the match was not a whitewash, with Connaught 4-4 at the interval and theoretically still in the match
